Beer-Cheese Spread

Beer Cheese Spread by virgininasweetpea.com

The theme for our October supper club was Oktoberfest.  I knew that I would make red cabbage as a side, but I also wanted to bring an appetizer to share.  Southern Living’s Beer-Cheese Spread was a hit.  I’m sharing this now because I think it would be a perfect Super Bowl party food!

I halved this recipe and it still made a huge amount.  We had no problem finishing it during the week, but you may consider making grilled cheese sandwiches with the leftovers.

Here is the recipe from Southern Living.  (I made half of this.)

Beer-Cheese Spread

Ingredients

  • 1  (2-lb.) block sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1  small onion, minced
  • 2  garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2  teaspoon  hot sauce
  • 1/4  teaspoon  ground red pepper
  • 1  (12-oz.) bottle amber beer, at room temperature
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Preparation

Beat together first 5 ingredients at low speed with a heavy-duty electric stand mixer until blended. Gradually add beer, beating until blended after each addition. Beat at medium-high speed 1 minute or until blended and creamy. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover and chill 2 hours. Garnish, if desired. Store in an airtight container in refrigerator up to 2 weeks.

I didn’t take any pictures at the party, but here are some of the leftovers that Mr. SP and I enjoyed the next night.

  1. I saw this in SL, and I am glad you test tasted it. I’ll have to try it very soon. I love cheese spreads and I bet it would be good on grilled cheese.
    Snow day here for the schools. I guess it is because of the impending weather again.

  2. That looks so delish Paula, I can’t wait to try it at my next gathering……or maybe just for the heck of it!

    My brother would love this (not T, as he has that weird aversion to cheese). Maybe I’ll make it for the Super Bowl. 🙂

    It looks really good, Paula!! It’s nice to get a new dip to replace the old standby’s. 🙂
